McCormick Place apartment description

The view in our first picture is is the Chicago City Skyline view from our deck (closed in winter when there is snow and ice). . The next photo in the ad is our 5 star hot tub. It's your new best friend after a day of travel, sightseeing, or business. They are both great places to relax.

We are offering specials for August 17th through 21st and August 31st through September 7th. Our special rates range from $180 per night to $195 per night. The rate depends on what dates and for how many nights.

If this apartment is booked, or if you have a larger group, we have a second apartment in this building that may be available. If you rent both apartments, you will be renting the entire building.

Below is the ad for our 2nd floor apartment .

http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p271945

You will be comfortable and at home in our rentals.


This Apartment has 3 bedrooms and 3 queen beds and sleeps up to 6 guests. We also have a queen air bed that can be set up for one extra sleeping space.

This site's quotable rates often do not match how we price our rentals and are sometimes not very accurate especially when we offer specials with discounts for additional nights. We try to set our rates as best as we can and show an average rate.. Please email or call us for an accurate rate quote. Rates for summer are usually the most accurate and last minute special rates are the least accurate as additional nights above our minimum are priced lower and this site is not able to calculate these rates correctly.

PLEASE CHECK OUR AVAILABILITY CALENDAR BEFORE INQUIRING. We often book up solid and very early. If this apartment is booked, our other apartment is listing number 271945. You can also reach us at our personal site which is Chicagosbestvacationrentals dot com

You can view a map of our location at Google Maps by typing in the following information.

529 W. 37th Street, Chicago IL 60609 When the map loads, you can click “get directions” to enter an address or “search nearby” to search for attractions.

The map is at street level, so please zoom it out a level or two and scroll north to see where we are at relative to downtown and McCormick Place. If you're coming for a show at McCormick, please let us know and we'll send information on getting there.

This rental is located just South of Downtown Chicago in the quiet and safe neighborhood of Bridgeport. It is a 10-15 minute drive or cab ride or it's a quick train ride to all of our great attractions on our great public transportation system. Ours is one of the safest neighborhoods in Chicago. 5 of our last 8 Mayors spanning 90 years came from our small neighborhood

Describing Our Neighborhood: Our proximity to downtown, McCormick Place , and I.I.T, has made ours a very hot residential destination for the last 10 years. One of our neighbors 5 or 6 houses away recently built a $2.5 million house and next door is a huge house with an indoor swimming pool in it's own addition that is listed for 1.7 million. New construction and completely renovated buildings like ours are the norm. Ours is a very quiet and peaceful block.

Baseball fans will love that we are a 5 minute walk to U.S. Cellular Field, home of the Chicago White Sox. For Cub Fans, the train runs directly between both ballparks.

We include one garage parking space with your rental. Street parking in our area is also very easy. Street parking can be tight when the White Sox are playing as we are close to the ball park, but even then, parking is easier than most areas of our city.

More facts about Our Rentals: Our daily newspaper, the Chicago Sun Times recently reported that our neighborhood was voted the best place to trick or treat based on the safety and the family atmosphere of our area. This is what they had to say.

The best neighborhood for trick-or-treating in Chicago? Bridgeport, says a real estate web site that says it factored in where a kid's likely to get 'the most candy, with the least walking and minimal safety risks.'

Bridgeport gets props from Zillow dot com as 'really a family neighborhood.'

Guests need to be 30 years of age. We don't rent our apartments for parties of any kind. Occasionally we will make slight exceptions on the age limit for responsible adults who are not coming here to party. Our guests appreciate that we have a quiet and peaceful environment We also don't rent to groups of students of any age regardless of whether they are chaperoned by an adult. .

The maximum capacity of the apartment is 6 people in 3 queen beds (and an air bed that can be set up for one extra sleeping space). We will sometimes make slight adjustments on these limits with prior approval.

AN IMPORTANT NEW DEVELOPMENT CONCERNING VACATION RENTALS IN CHICAGO.

The City of Chicago has a new ordinance that regulates vacation rentals.
We are a legal vacation rental and our license number is 2074660.

Enforcement of this Ordinance has begun. Unlicensed properties can be shut down by the city and/or their condo association at any time. For these and other reasons, we recommend that you book your rental with a licensed Vacation Rental Owner.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: We have mapped out many of our great attractions. They are all within a 10-15 minute drive or a short train ride of 2-4 stops. Please scroll the map to the north and you can see just how close we are to everything. Baseball fans will love how close we are to White Sox games

                      Why the Owner Chose McCormick Place:
                      Ours is a very safe neighborhood and very close to our city center. Our guests love that they can get anywhere in the city within 10-20 minutes.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      You will love our deck with the amazing view of the Chicago city skyline, our hot tub, and our huge showers with multiple Grohe Body Sprays. You will also love how easy it is to park and to get around the city. We are ½ mile from the I-94 Dan Ryan Expressway. It is a 3 mile/5 minute drive to Lake Shore Drive and a few miles from there to the Museums, Navy Pier, Millennium Park, Michigan Avenue shopping and every major attraction in this city. When we lived in this building ourselves, we would always be able to get to the lakefront from our garage in 10 to 15 minutes as long as there wasn’t rush hour traffic or a game or concert at Soldier Field. Even then, we would take Michigan Avenue, State Street, or one of the other side roads and still make great travel time to our city center. Ours is a quiet, safe, and friendly family neighborhood. It’s not real trendy, but you can save a fortune on casual dining or drink prices if you want to eat locally some of the time during you visit. You can park easily too. If you want to visit our 5 star restaurants or nightclubs, they are a quick 10-20 minute drive or cab ride away.
